Personalized Plate ideas for Z3

I saw other threads asking what people's personalized plate ideas were, but they were dated back to like 2010, so I'm starting another. Anyone have anything clever? Just got this for my Z3. My logic: I'm a zombie movie freak, lucky number is 13, and it starts and ends with Z and 3. I might have put too much time into thinking about the plate though.

Why not just add to the older thread, so people can easily see all the personalized plates?

A little OT, but exactly 2 months till season 3. Yahoo! Let's hope the wait is worth it!

My girl has flat out refused to let me take the coupe when the zombie apocalypse hits. We have to take her WRX instead. :-( I'm working on excuses to split up. Currently topping the list is "I'll lead them away and you make a run for it!!" I wonder how you'll do in the vert.....? :-)

Keep her around. You might need her as bait to get away from a horde. I'm planning on swapping out the rag top for an aluminum cage with horizontal chainsaw slits.

Back to topic...do you have a personalized plate

Haha..... yeah, bait. I'll keep that in mind. Cage with chainsaw slits.... nice. Queue the A-Team music and get started.

RE: Personalise plate. Yes and no. Around the time I bought the car the powers that be came out with yet another license plate money maker called "Euro" plates, which are in the style of what they they use in Europe. I liked they way they suited the car. The rear plate is much bigger than our standard plates, so they fill the area nicely (the front is slim). You can choose the text but there are rules. They must be 3 letters followed by three numbers. And they must start with a specific letter, depending on the state you are from. So I chose the below, for Victorian M Z4, 3.2 litre. I kind of like that it doesn't look personalised, not that I have anything against them at all, I just don't want to be too memorable....

I really like the way that looks, and didn't even know options like that exist.

Give me a heads up if you plan on going and want a Z3 buddy. I'd go...thats much closer to me than the other one. Plus, probably fewer tuner kids.
